Grab popsicles for the kids and a cold brew for yourself. By the time you make the short stroll to your little slice of paradise in the sand, they'll still be chillin'. (And the popsicles and beer, too! ;)
Welcome to Gulfside 404 is your home away from home at the luxurious Destin West Beach & Bay Resort. Besides its incredible oceanfront location -- practically a stone's throw from the sugar white sand of the gorgeous Gulf shoreline -- this fourth-floor unit with its wraparound balcony and stunning views of the aqua blue waters of both the sea and pool is just what the doctor ordered for truly unwinding. Aquatherapy just doesn't get any better than this. Gulfside 404 is a jewel among condos at Destin West... so perfect for hangin' at the beach with (or without?) the kids, counting waves, building sandcastles, people watching, snacking or just lazing around for a change. Hey... it's vacation, after all!
SOUND LIKE HEAVEN? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! =)
Not that kicking back is the ONLY thing to do at Destin West. If you haven't been here before, TRUST us when we say that the amenities on both bay and Gulf sides are incomparable. (And that's not counting the local area attractions we've listed below.) Destin West is a veritable oasis of pools, palm trees, Jacuzzis and, the Piece de resistance... a continually flowing, 700 foot-long tuber's dream called the "Lazy River" located just across the sky bridge. It's just that, at Destin West Gulfside 404 -- and we know this may come as a shock -- YOU get to decide whether to spend the day with your feet in the sand... or surf. Stretched out in a beach chair... or floating, in a donut-shaped pillow, around the 700ft lazy river. Taking a short walk to a restaurant for a bite to eat... or cruisin' on back to your condo to grab a sandwich and head back out to the beach. Lazing around, or going snorkeling... the choice is always up to you. How cool is that?
INDOORS IS LAID BACK, TOO. WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO CHILLAX... ALL WRAPPED UP IN A COLORFUL, CHEERFUL, BEAUTIFUL SPACE TO CALL "HOME."
Leave your shoes -- and your cares -- at the door and step inside your roomy, three-bedroom, two-bath condo with its amazing views of the sugar white beach, turquoise waves, and the spectacular pool, and you'll immediately know you're home. Tastefully appointed in comfortable and stylish furnishings, the coastal hues pay homage to what's outside, Gulfside 404 is your perfect family getaway. The master suite, which has its own private door to the wraparound deck, houses a beachy-chic, king-sized bed all decked out in premium linens and with a comfortable mattress for that all important great night's sleep. The master also has a chair that convert into a twin sleeper just in case you need room for one more.
Getting ready for dinner out is a breeze in the adjoining master bath with double vanities, separate shower and a sumptuous garden tub. The tastefully appointed guestroom with adjoining second bath and queen bed also sports premium linens and mattress, in keeping with the theme of comfort. Tucked away from the adult space, the colorful kids' bunkroom is ideal for coaxing weary sandcastle architects to sweet, blissful sleep. And, of course, each room has its own flat screen TV to meet a variety of entertainment preferences, from cartoons to sports to HGTV and beyond. Please note that the bunk room TV plays DVDs only, but we have a library of great movies provided.
The living room offers a queen sleeper sofa (the condo sleeps up to eight guests), DVD player and a large HDTV for family movie night. Free wireless internet lets you post your vaycay photos for all your friends and family to envy. A fully equipped kitchen (should you actually feel inclined to cook) features a side-by side refrigerator equipped with water and ice, dishwasher, oven with smooth-top range and a built-in microwave (for microwave popcorn... and meals... yes, vacation is all about ease). A coffee maker, toaster and blender round out our well-appointed kitchen, so you can enjoy your morning smoothies with coffee and a bagel. We didn't forget the washer and dryer, either. Hey, it's less to pack... just bring your swimsuits and flip flops. We also stashed beach chairs and an umbrella in a rolling cart for easy transfer to the beach.
COME FOR THE LAZY RIVER. COME FOR THE PRISTINE BEACH. COME FOR THE AWESOME MEMORIES. WHATEVER THE REASON... YOU'LL BE BACK.
The resort's list of amenities is almost embarrassing, they're so luxurious. With offerings like a 5,000 square-foot swimming pool, kid-friendly zero-entry (aka beach) pool, two giant Jacuzzis, winter-heated waterfall pool, and the region's largest lazy river, you'll have to be very intentional to have anything less than a perfect day. The resort's private footbridge makes for safe, easy transit between the pristine, white-sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico's Choctawhatchee Bay, and the bay side with its Lazy River and unparalleled amenities. Rent boogie boards, sea kayaks, or jet skis; sign the kids up for resort activities; and sweat off Florida's epicurean delights in the state-of-the-art fitness center.
As if that weren't enough, Destin West is walking distance to a slew of activities the likes of which you won't find anywhere else. The Boardwalk and fishing pier, Fudpuckers, The Gulfarium, and The Ramada Palaza are all a short walk from the Resort. As a guest with us, you always have full access to all of the amenities at the Ramada Plaza Resort, including the famous Grotto Pool with swim-up bar. Or, if you prefer to go exploring, Okaloosa Island offers miles of Gulf and Bay beaches that are perfect for outdoor adventures.
Yes, without a doubt, Destin West Resort is one of the most family-friendly, well serviced, and upscale locales on the island. Ready to book it now? Weeks fill up quickly... consider yourself forewarned. ;)
